Also note that the device is available in Lilac Purple, Midnight Black, Titanium Gray, and Coral Blue. But the firm might not make all the colours available in every countries.
Talking about the battery, of course many people (especially those from Nigeria without stable electricity) needs devices with huge battery capacity. However, this has just a 3, 000mAh battery.
This is sort of problem with the S8 but the setup conserves power and the fast charging (Quick Charge 2.0) is still present using the USB Type-C connector.
However, the exciting thing with brands like Samsung is that they’ve got strong batteries that are actually strong. These batteries are stronger than the 5,000mAh some other brands parades.
You should also know that here in Nigeria, the device will support LTE on all networks.
